Corporate Responsibility and ESG

Acting ethically and becoming more Radically Human

At Korn Ferry, our responsibility as a global corporation is central to our vision. Our commitment to act ethically begins with each of us and is embedded in our core values, which guide the way we work together and with others. We have programs to find, hire, nurture, and reward our talent.

What does Corporate Responsibility mean to us?

At Korn Ferry, we believe we all share far more commonality than differences, that we have an inherent need to live with purpose and provide a better future for those that follow. As a global firm of more than 8,600 employees, we take seriously the role Korn Ferry plays, the example we can set, and the responsibility the firm has as a corporate citizen.

Korn Ferry is built upon a foundation of trust, respect, and service — with and to our clients, employees, and the communities where we work and live. At Korn Ferry, we see corporate responsibility as an important opportunity to change people’s lives and to accelerate the overarching goals of our clients. We approach everything through this lens as we support our people and community, live our values, and promote global sustainability.”
